    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 119:61

    The bands of the wicked have robbed me - חבלי chebley, the cables, cords, or snares of the wicked. They have hunted us like wild beasts; many they have taken for prey, and many they have destroyed.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 119:61

    The bands of the wicked - Margin, "companies." The Hebrew word properly means a cord, a rope; then a snare, gin, net; then, a band or a company of men. The reference is to some time in the life of the psalmist when he was surrounded by wicked men.

    Have robbed me - Rather, have surrounded me; have environed me - for so the Hebrew word means.

    But I have not forgotten thy law - I have not been deterred from keeping it by the dangers to which I have been exposed.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 119:61

    119:61 Robbed - Done me many injuries, for my respect to thy law.
